    Yeah stick welding is no problem.. I like that. Steel tig just doesn't flow like aluminum. I can do ok but I just tend to want to turn on the pulser to get the "look" I'm going for.. probably means nothing for strength.

    Flip it over and look at your penetration. As long as you have good penetration on the back side your strength is there.

    2020/2021 Plans:

    Install the CAS that has been sitting on the shelf so that I can install CNP.
    Install TorqStorm Supercharger and support hardware
    Upgrade to 6R80 trans with Quick 6 controller

    Well the stainless didn't have a backpurge and no sugaring on back of it so I'm guessing the penetration was maybe 70% or so. I'm playing with doing autogenous weld first then going over with filler and pulse.

    Nice. I like the exhaust going on outside of frame rail. Gives me ideas for future stuff.

    That would tuck in even closer with oval exhaust.

    Probably true. In my future build I may have exhaust go outside frame rails but haven't decided yet.

    Lol my machine is good. That lap joint was first done autogenously to get good penetration, then I pulsed it with some thin filler. I like the consistent look of pulse.
